The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) becomes available January 1 each year. Visit to submit your application. Remember to use Mendocino College's School Code (011672) when completing your FAFSA. 

Our office uses the FAFSA to determine a student's eligibility to receive financial aid. Based on the information entered on the FAFSA, a student's Expected Family Contribution (EFC) is determined and used to calculate their eligibility for financial aid.

The videos below provide additional information regarding the FAFSA.
